Parchment Craft Snowflake


Well, did we ever get a ton of snow last night!! It was so beautiful this morning all sparkling in the sun, so I thought I would share a snowflake card with you today!

This card is made from parchment paper. It is also called Pergamano. I traced the image with white ink and a mapping pen. I turned it over onto a embossing mat and embossed the snowflake and some of the border. With a 1 needle tool I stippled (pierced) the inner border. If you look close you can see all the little holes. I used a 2 needle tool around the outside to make the edge. I made the inner card (blue) with a 5 needle tool. I taped them together between the last 2 layers.

I hope you like it
Have a great day
Karen
